Really, you would allow us to have a shotgun! Can we have one of these https://www.google.com/search?q=assault+...600&bih=813 or do we only get two shells?

Well admittedly, I actually kinda agree with him....a double barrel shotgun is a better home defense weapon than anything else I have in the gunsafe, including the ARs, pistols, semi-auto rifles, etc.

But regarding guns, I don't think knows his arse from 3rd base, and I don't want him mandating my choices in firearms, or anything else for that matter.

You have a bandolier sitting next to your shotgun? Risky decision to have only two shots at the ready.

According to what biden said

Just fire 2 shots in the air from your double barrell shotgun and they will go away.

If you do that more than likley you will get arrested.

If my memory serves me correct a double barrel shotgun was one of the weapons used in the Columbine massacre.

My 870 is by my bed side as we speak and is my go to home defense weapon, however it is absurd for Joe Biden or anyone else to think they have the right to tell me or anyone else what firearm I need to defend myself and family. It is just none of his dam business!

That may be the case in your home but it’s not the case in mine. I don’t have any one weapon that I call my "home defense gun". Whatever I pick up will be the one I use, I tend to lean to the AR platform because I know in the middle of the night, half asleep I can manipulate that weapon due to the amount of training I have with it. I would never tell anyone else what they should use and I don’t expect anyone to tell me.

"Home defense gun" just to clarify, does not limit me to the one gun. It simply means that is the one that is readily available, one that I can have my hands on in 2 seconds and not locked up in the safe.

Why is it people who know nothing about guns or self defense are the ones who think they are qualified to tell us the best way to defend ourselves?

If you want to live, do not take self defense lessons from a Liberal. They will have you blowing a rape whistle.

A pump action shotgun is a poor choice for home defense unless you keep it loaded. Now before anyone gets all mad, if I were to break into a house and I had a gun on me and I hear the click click of a shotgun, I would be scared, but also I would just shoot in the direction of the clicks. It gives away your position. To me it is a poor choice of weapon unless you keep it at the ready. Too many times have I heard some redneck say the clicking noise would scare off a burglar. To me it would just be an audible target.


If dueling were still legal I think there would be less idiots in charge of things...

Not to mention the fact he said if someone is trying to break in you should got outside and fire both barrels......Leaving you empty, in order to scare them away. What a Maroon.

Exactly!

I would imagine the charge would be "unlawful discharge of a firearm within city limits" ....or "discharge of a firearm within certain number of feet of an occupied residence"...or something like that.

And rightly so.

That's as bad as firing shots in the air to celebrate New Years or the 4th of July.

If a shotgun is loaded with buckshot, those rounds are going to be destructive for quite some distance.

Biden's advice was extremely irresponsible.

Just illustrates what a moron he really is.

That's a good point.

Although, I have to say that it reminds me of a friend of mine who owned a gunshop. His home was directly behind the shop, and was attached. But you couldn't see it from the street. One night, he was awakened to to the sound of someone on the roof, and it sounded like they were trying to break into the shop through the roof. He got out of bed, grabbed his pump shotgun and stepped outside and yelled at the guy for him to come down off the roof. The guy replied, "No comprendo! No comprendo!" My friend racked a round into the chamber. The burglar then yelled back, "Don't shoot! I'm coming down!" roflmao

I learned a valuable lesson about that several years ago. Things don't always work smooth with adrenaline pumping in your veins.

Two things you don't necessarily want to give away your position BEFORE you incapacitate your opponent... light and sound. The upper hand or element of surprise is not a bad thing at all. That said... Who keeps an unloaded home defense gun ???? If they hear "click" it will have been preceded by "BOOM!"
